We made it out of Alberta! But not without some additional off road shenannigans. The Alberta road crew let us on to the Trans-Canada highway - Awesome we thought - we've made it! Then we got the to the Saskatchewan border and the Saskatchewan crew wasn't going to let us on. They even called their crew chief and had him speak to me and explain that we couldn't pass and would have to go back about 60 km to the start of the traffic detour... what to do?... we (myself and Tim, another TCBC) stood around for a bit chatting with the road crew and finally one of them said - "when I'm not looking - just go" :) Great! But what lies ahead and will we be able to get around it? It was really cool to have the whole highway to ourselves - for nearly 30 km there was nothing but the occasional dump truck delivering new dirt or stones to the washed out road. When we got to the site there was yet another check point who told us we couldn't go through. This still didn't stop us. We could now see the other side and going through a field and over some barbed wire was a small effort compared to what we put ourselves through the day before. Haha! Victory! We made it to Saskatchewan! and now we are about 150 km from Regina in a tiny town called Champlin. The adventures continue and every day is a completely new adventure. I love it!
Two Wheels and a Heartbeat
A long time personal dream and now a worthy cause.
Huntington's disease has profoundly impacted my family and until recently I didn't even know about it. When I suggested to my dad that I was going to ride across Canada and was looking for a cause he suggested The Huntington Society. Now I'm learning a lot about the disease, the people it affects, and my family. Help find a cure with your donation to the Huntington Society of Canada.
How much could we raise if everyone donated $25 (charitable receipt provided automatically by email)
